A Peruvian court dismissed on Monday an order that prevented the extradition of former judge Dan Cohen to Israel.

Cohen is wanted in Israel for charges of accepting bribes, fraud and breach of trust, for allegedly tilting bids in exchange for payment, when he was on the board of directors of the Israel Electric Corporation.

The decision will be passed on to the political leadership in Peru, which will give a final decision on whether to extradite Cohen.
